I loved the philosophical wisdom of E G from San Francisco who stated 'atheism is not a belief' (Write Back, October 15).

The atheist philosopher Bertrand Russell said: "Without a concept of God, life is meaningless." Atheism is a nihilistic philosophy where nothing has meaning and life is meaningless. Apparently, it's an intellectual pastime. Thank God I'm not an intellectual.
